UGI Utilities Announces 2019 Infrastructure Replacement and Betterment Projects

16 Apr 2019

READING, PA – UGI Utilities will spend more than $187.5 million in fiscal year 2019 to replace natural gas mains and complete a number of system enhancement projects.

“UGI remains committed to enhancing the safety and reliability of our infrastructure,” Hans Bell, UGI Chief Operating Officer, said. “These infrastructure projects ensure our system provides safe and reliable service for UGI customers and for the many communities we serve.”

Approximately 64 miles of cast iron and bare steel mains are targeted for replacement in UGI’s current fiscal year plan. The new mains will be constructed of contemporary materials such as high-density plastic or protected steel. These infrastructure replacement projects are complemented by a number of UGI capital projects such as pressure reinforcements to improve system reliability, service line and meter replacements, and regulator station improvements.

UGI’s infrastructure replacement plan prioritizes projects based on a variety of factors. Since 2011, UGI has retired more than 450 miles of non-contemporary pipelines.

UGI will provide advance notification regarding construction schedules to residents of the communities where these projects will occur. As part of the construction projects, UGI will replace service lines to customer homes as needed as part of the natural gas main betterment initiative. When replacing service lines, UGI personnel will need to gain access to customer residences.

UGI reminds residents in affected communities that projects may cause temporary parking restrictions and traffic congestion. UGI works collaboratively with municipal officials to minimize traffic and parking issues associated with these projects and to provide specific detour and lane restriction information to local residents and commuters traveling through project work zones. Construction projects typically take place between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, unless otherwise noted.

UGI’s infrastructure replacement and betterment projects also provide an opportunity for homes and businesses within the project areas to convert to natural gas. UGI encourages customers along project routes to contact the company at 800-276-2722 if they are interested in converting to natural gas during construction.

Listed below are key infrastructure projects that will replace at least one-quarter mile of non-contemporary natural gas mains. The listed projects are either scheduled for completion in fiscal year 2019 or are already under construction. The project list is subject to change based on a number of factors including, but not limited to inclement weather and municipal roadwork schedules.

In addition to the projects listed in this release, UGI has already completed approximately 29 projects, each of more than one-quarter mile in length, in fiscal year 2019, which began on October 1, 2018. A number of projects covering shorter distances have also been completed or have commenced and will continue throughout the year.

Customers and community residents interested in additional information can view a complete list of scheduled infrastructure projects, along with their status, on UGI’s website at www.ugi.com/construction. This site is regularly updated. The site also includes a list of projects that have been completed in the past six months.
